by Margaret Woolfolk:
First Catholic Mass celebrated at Crawfordsville by the Rev. J. O’Niel Doyle of Osceola at the J. T. Haden home which continued to be used for services for about 4 years. Father Meigham came from Little Rock, Ark. in 1913 to serve Catholics as Pastor, under whose direction a small frame Church was erected on the Haden property on east side of Main Street, North of Bay Ferry Road in summer 1915. It was dedicated by Bishop John D. Morris, Nov. 7, 1815. Adjacent to the edifice was a church cemetery which is today known as the Haden Cemetery. This building burned in June 1946.
